10 Things to Know About Microsoft Windows 10.

WASHINGTON — Microsoft began rolling out its Windows 10 operating system on Wednesday, aiming to revive the tech giant’s fortunes, especially in mobile and the “internet of things”. It is known to all that Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a free upgrade but what a few might have missed is that the upgrade only comes free to those who run genuine copies of Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.The latest version of the Redmond company’s operating system began downloading onto users’ computers early Wednesday, and had broken the 14 million mark on Thursday, Yusuf Mehdi, the executive who oversees marketing for Windows, said in a blog post. The stakes are high for Microsoft as it pushes out the new operating system for both traditional computers and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. In this world experiences are mobile, moving with you seamlessly and easily across your devices. “Interacting with technology is as natural as interacting with people — using voice, pen, gestures and even gaze for the right interaction, in the right way, at the right time.

That’s right, Microsoft Windows 10 has hit the Internets (intentional misspelling, natch) and that means you should immediately go ahead and download it onto your laptop, right? And in our connected and transparent world, we respect your privacy and help protect your information.” “Microsoft will face a long road ahead to gain Windows share in mobile.

Well, to help you decide if that is a wise course of action or if it might be smarter to just get a new iPhone app, here are ten things to know that are important for small business owners (or anyone who owns a laptop). While it will win a growing share of enterprise tablet purchases, the plans for Windows 10 don’t show enough potential to create a differentiated mobile experience that will draw developers and customers away from iOS and Android,” he said. Richard Edwards, an analyst at consultancy Ovum, said Microsoft was looking beyond mobile to emerging technologies including wearables and other connected devices. “This isn’t about recapturing the important mobile operating systems market.

And Windows 10 will include the Microsoft Edge browser, a move designed to help the tech magnate regain market share lost to rivals such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. According to a report by Wired, users should go to ‘Control panel’, ‘Language and region’, and then go to the region for the United States, click ‘Administrative’ and change the language to English (United States). To appease users who complained about the loss of the “start” button on Windows 8, Microsoft has brought that feature back, while allowing users to switch back to the “live tiles” menu. Microsoft hopes to break the cycle in which consumers shun Windows for mobile because it lacks the large catalog of applications found on rival platforms, thus discouraging app makers from creating Windows versions.

Hit apps could ramp up popularity of Windows-driven hardware made by Microsoft and its partners, and increase opportunities for the company to make money from online activities such as search, shopping and software as services in the Internet cloud. With Windows 10 and other products, Microsoft is shifting away from one-time software sales to a subscription model – or software as a service – in an effort to better compete in the new tech landscape. Here it is: “We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to protect our customers or enforce the terms governing the use of the services.” Does it mean Microsoft could decide they can share your personal data with a private party? It’s a good question to ask, even if Microsoft has been putting a fresh face on the OS for years instead of messing too much with how drivers for your printer, scanners, and other office gear work. Well, this one depends on who you ask–but all signs point to a future when there is no such thing as a new Microsoft smartphone that syncs perfectly with Windows.

It’s not a big deal if you use Android or an iPhone because most of the cloud data we use today is synced easily without needing to use a laptop at all. It’s worth noting that Microsoft has put a ton of effort into this release, especially in terms of making apps that run the same on many different devices — from tablets and laptops to weird desktop computers like the HP Sprout.

There’s something about using a Mac that matches up nicely with the entrepreneurial mindset, that rare breed that is not afraid to go against the norm. if that’s your statement, keep making it.
